For those truly looking for a Home away from Home...

On the Southern coast of Maine, at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in a quaint family neighborhood just minutes from the sandy beaches and open Atlantic, sits this 3 bdrm/3 bath Cape. With a classic New England farmer’s porch out front and an extensive furnished deck off the back, overlooking 180 acres of conservation land and 1.5 miles of nature trails, the beauty of Maine’s sights and sounds surround you. Only 2 1/2 miles to 4 family beaches, York Village, York Harbor, the Turnpike and Southern Maine’s only family Zoo/Amusement Park, this tranquil home away from home combines natural beauty with solitude and convenience.

Inside this tastefully landscaped home, you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, W/D, Formal DR, LR, Family Room and full bath. Multiple TV’s, digital cable and wireless access allow guests to remain connected to the outside world. Upstairs, the Master suite has a King bed, spacious walk-in closet, full sectional couch, large TV, office area and full bath with stall shower and Jacuzzi tub. The Second BRM has a Queen bed with a view of the pond and nature preserve. The third BRM has a Full bed and a pull-out trundle. The downstairs LR has a pull-out sleep sofa, expanding the sleeping capacity of the house to 10 guests. Three full baths include a shower stall and Jacuzzi tub in the Master, full tub/shower in the 2nd bath upstairs, and a shower stall in the downstairs bath. There are air conditioners in all three bedrooms and a total of 4 ceiling fans to ensure a comfortable temperature.

Watch your kids ride their bikes around the quiet cul-de-sac while you sip lemonade on the Farmers Porch out front, or enjoy the natural beauty of Maine summers on the fully furnished expanded deck off the back, complete with a Weber gas grill. Enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the pond amidst the serenity of the bird sanctuary. Count the stars at night and let the peepers lull you to sleep.

The house is tastefully decorated to make your home away from home...a comfortable retreat! The amenities of home- paired with the amenities of a coastal resort town.

About Jen McShera

Why Jen McShera chose Southern Coast of Maine

We bought into this neighborhood because of it's unique residential setting and commitment to conservation land. Nature trails surround our cul-de-sac and children feel safe to play in the yards. There is a common area perfect for afternoon picnics, morning yoga and basketball into the evening. A short car ride takes you to miles of sandy beaches, a quaint village shopping spree or a day at the outlets. There is even a seasonal zoo and amusement park right down the road:) The lakes region is a short trip away, as are the mountains. Truly location, location, location, figured into our plans to settle here. Not a day goes by that we are not grateful for the natural beauty that surrounds us. We love the beach by day, but adore the peace and quiet of our backyard peepers and frogs in the evening as we sit out on the deck under the stars...

What makes this house unique

So close to all the action and activities of a coastal resort town! This house offers the best of both worlds...the convenience of a few short miles to the ocean and the quiet natural beauty of backyard conservation land.

Just minutes to the seaside amenities, we live in a neighborhood setting, on the end of a quiet cul-de-sac joined by four other homes. Our property abuts conservation land with over 1.5 miles of marked nature trails. Perfect for hikers and nature enthusiasts. Our backyard is peaceful and serene overlooking protected woodlands, a pond and nature trails. Just jump in the car and go to any one of the four great beaches here in York. (Beaches are about 5 minutes from here.) Enjoy a morning or late afternoon walk, run, bike or stroll on the 3+ miles of safe sidewalks in the development, complete with ocean views at the top of the hill.

Our deck is totally private for sun bathing and we are SO close to lots of picturesque New England destinations...the perfect spot for day-tripping guests.

And let us take a moment to introduce Ogunquit village. Ogunquit village is about a minute drive from our house, and there is a lot to do there including the Ogunquit Playhouse; Broadway on the Beach! Ogunquit is known for its fine beaches, great restaurants, sailing and boating in Perkins Cove, unsurpassed summer theatre of the stars, museums and gift shops. Ogunquit is also a renowned seaside artist community. The town of York has many beaches that cater to different interests; busy, quiet and kid-friendly. York also has some fine restaurants, lovely places to visit and Southern Maine's only Zoo/amusement park! Research both York and Ogunquit's Chambers of Commerce to get a taste of what is in the area. The famous Kittery Outlets are right down the road, so shopping is a decadent pleasure just a few minutes from our home.!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This amazing home has been my family's "home away from home" for the past 3 summers. Our entire family spends the week in this fabulous home and location to "get away from it all" and enjoy the nearby ocean and area. The family that rents this home is just as wonderful as the home itself. We have created some amazing memories staying at this wonderful residential York property. We have privacy while at the same time, we are not far away from all of the restaurants and activities in town and nearby towns. This is our PERFECT paradise. We book the following summer the week after we leave! It is truly a hidden treasure. It is comfortable, relaxing and has all of the benefits of being able to stay in for the night or go out for the night. It is spacious so that everyone has their own space when needed. There is a large living room and dining room for the family to gather together. I cannot say enough about this magical home. Absolutely amazing!

Second time in York. First time at this home...FABULOUS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I spent a week at this location at the end of June and the first week of July. The house was beautiful and the central location was great for traveling north or south. The owners could not have been nicer. The house and outside area was perfect for cooking, relaxing and just having a wonderful time. We all would recommend this house to anyone wanting a fun, relaxing place for your visit to southern Maine.
